Thanks to the Mets, we're up by a half-game. It's up to Yovani Gallardo and the Fightin' Brewers Offense to keep us there.
The Phillies send Kyle Kendrick out to stop us. Compared to Gallardo, he's a crusty veteran, at nearly 23 years of age. He's got a respectable 4.04 ERA in nine starts this year, but the other shoe is going to drop one of these outings: his FIP is nearly a full run higher, based on some uninspiring peripherals. May Ryan Braun play the part of the other shoe.
